Its excellent quality, the traditional method of preparation, its pure materials and its delightful taste, make it unique and secure for it a place in the table of every family in Crete.

The flagship of the traditional Cretan nutrition carries with it a history of many centuries, and with respect to its history it is that we produce it in our modern facilities.

The Cretan Graviera is a yellow, hard, table cheese with asymmetric holes throughout its tasteful body, and a natural crust. It has a uniquely delightful semi sweet and salty taste that inspires a feeling of euphoria and well-being with every bite.
